Almere is the second largest city in the Amsterdam region, and the youngest city in the Netherlands. Located in the province of Flevoland, Almere was built on land reclaimed from the sea in a feat of Dutch engineering, on the former Zuiderzee 3.49 m below sea level. Now, more than 40 years later, the area has been developed into well-planned residential areas with parks, lakes, modern infrastructure and excellent transport links. Our hotel the Holiday Inn Express Almere with its 160 rooms and Amsterdam city a short train ride away, will be loved by business travelers and tourists alike. With our solar panels the hotel generates its own energy. A visit to the Oostvaarsplassen Nature Reserve, is well worth the effort. In 2022 Almere will be the host city for the Floriade Expo 2022.
